How can we improve Discord?

NSFW Pop-up

Hey guys!

I read on your ToS that you don't allow anything pornographic or anything of that nature.

Now, I understand where you're coming from and that you want to keep the app family friendly. And I know you're probably going to want me to throw this suggestion into the suggestions section of your site, but I was wondering if you'd remove that ToS and add an option to NSFW 18+ lock certain channels of your discord server. I mean, it wouldn't be hard to do. Just have it like porn sites and do a yes or no type situation.

My server used to have an NSFW channel until I read upon your ToS. I hope we can make something out of this.

    How would they be able to block incoming images that contain NSFW content. There is no way for the program to read the file before posting is there?

    I personally hae used discord for PMs with the GF. And what happens, happens.

    I could see a use for such a tag, and a sort of "Spoiler" system for such.
    EX: User wants to post an NSFW image in a server or DM

    To accomplish, user surrounds text or resources with an [nsfw] tag or a char such as "%%% NSFW RESOURCE HERE %%%"

    Now, after verification that you want to see this content, you could view the surprise beneath, and MAYBE including an option within user settings to automatically allow NSFW content showing, ignoring the system

    Uhm.. I didn't know that your ToS doesn't allow sending any NSFW material. My question is, what if I chat with my gf (just like on skype) and she decides to "send nudes". I mean, it's a bit odd to ban NSFW content.

    In addition it would be nice if there was an option to set up a passcode to unlock nsfw channels. Because some people—totally asking for a friend—struggle with porn addictions, and would hate to have to get rid of discord just because there is no shortage of NSFW content available.

    (Even if you don't implement nsfw channels, please please please add a passcode locked "join new servers" privilege. Please.)

    As of this moment, I think that TOS forbids from posting porn/NSFW. But people will still do that anyway, so why not come to terms with that and hide behind the "NSFW content is posted on the posters responsibility" or something and then be able to lock out the servers. For anyone that has a channel for that on their server: just put requirement of a specific role to see it. I've seen servers doing that, and people go along. Sexuality is a normal thing for humans and when I know that Discord was created with something different in mind than sharing nude ladies/gentlemen, people will do it anyway

    Discord seems to mainly be used by gamers and gamers are very often into anime and people into anime are very often into hentai

    So while I have only seen about 2 irl pornographic pictures on discord ever, I have seen a whole ton of naked anime character and other hentai

    Further, and [MUTE] said, it will probably stick around forever unless massive steps are made to stop it. End game is that a ton of servers have an NSFW channel, and I doubt that are going to readily remove them

    Pornography isn't allowed? Good! Can I report a server somewhere?

  • EzBakeJewsEzBakeJews commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    You can kinda do the same thing with roles and just have a channel where people request NSFW roles, but this would be much easier.

  • MarlonMarlon commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I would like to see the server owner to be able to change the image that displays over top of NSFW images as well as spoiler tags. Perhaps even multiple images that randomize each time

  • KairiKairi commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    There's nothing you can do to prevent NSFW... I don't think anyone reads your ToS anyways (I did, but I'm not anyone, am I?) and if they did, no one's going to accept it. If there was an option to lock servers, that'd be cool, so you had to, like, hit an extra button or click on a link in an email to join the server. Removing it altogether is just... unheard of. There's no way you can stop it.

    NSFW images will always be there. If we restrict it to specific channels, there will be a lot less NSFW images seen publicly.

    good idea i guess.. although you could make an over 18 only role and everyone to confirm their age before being moved into the role and see the room(s) - you could even ask them to dm a selfie with a passport or other ID showing their age if it isn't obvious.. just an idea for now.

    (i dont have a nsfw room but if i did thats what i would do at least)

    We are talking about the gaming community here. Most children will click "Yes" anyway.

  • DimitriasDimitrias commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Maybe make the popup customizable so it can be reused for adding a spoiler warning to some text channel for example.

  • [ Mute ][ Mute ] commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Either way, NSFW is in Discord to stay. So incredibly common in servers across the board. It would be wise to work around it if there's no realistic way to get rid of it all to comply with the TOS (not that I have anything against NSFW, myself).

    NSFW is a way we can all come together and beat our meat like true friends.... may we embrace this moment and live long and dirty!

    As the bae king I hereby agree to this because this is getting me so hard that I want part of this crusade quest!
